    Is Obama the last Black POTUS we'll see in our lifetime?

    I believe Obama will be the last Black POTUS we'll see in our lifetimes.

    Why?

    Because of the way he 'slipped' into office. Because of what he has done and not done in office. Because of how his campaign has behaved in this re-election bid. And because of how his administration and re-election campaign has divided this nation.

    So, bottom line, enjoy it while you have it, Obama fans.

    He's the last African American that White voters will take a chance on for a loooooong time.

    Who...cares about his skin? I didn't think that was at all part of the discussion.

    He's also a christian, does that mean he'll be the last christian POTUS we'll see in our lifetimes?

    After the next 4 years there maybe a referendum to overturn the 2 term limit. Then Obama can win a 3rd time.

    Quite a few people, when he's being criticized.

    That said, the OP is silly.
    The only reason to be anti-libertarian is there are people you want to control that you wouldn't be able to.

    The premise of the OP is severely flawed. But in answer...no. The demographics in this country are rapidly changing. It is highly likely that we will see several people of color elected to the office in the future.

    Time to move on from sorting our presidents, or anyone else, by color.

    I think it depends on how old one is. If you are 80, yep. If you are 18, nope.

    The premise for this thread is that Liberals and others acknowledge voting for Obama so that they could say they finally elected a Black man to the office.

    They weren't as concerned about his qualifications as they should have been, or else he'd have lost.

    No. The voters fell in love with the narrative of THE FIRST BLACK POTUS.

    His skin color WAS the reason he was elected.

    But they won't do that again.

    Until they nominate another unqualified candidate who is White, I guess.

    Maybe it will be the last man we have in office.
